Showtime’s active shooter series to feature Dec. 2 San Bernardino attack; when it’ll air is uncertain
Showtime’s new series on active shooters is expected to focus on the Dec. 2, 2015, San Bernardino attack that left 14 dead and 22 wounded; whether it’ll run this week in light of the Las Vegas mass shooting that left 59 dead was still in question Tuesday.
The episode was slated to run Friday; however, the network on Monday pulled a repeat of the premiere focusing on the Aurora., Colo, theater shooting in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting that left at least 59 dead and hundreds wounded, CNN reported. There was no word Tuesday afternoon as to whether Friday’s episode would air as scheduled.
The episode on San Bernardino will focus on the attack at the Inland Regional Center during which San Bernardino County health inspector Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik opened fire during an all-day training seminar and holiday luncheon held by the county’s Environmental Health Services Division.
The premiere episode, which aired two days before the Las Vegas attack, focused on the 2012 shooting in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater that left 12 dead and dozens wounded. The killer, James Eagan Holmes, 24, was a former UC Riverside student.
